Deputy Knesset Speaker Danny Danon (Likud) on Wednesday commented on the Knesset's rejection of two bills proposing to probe left-wing NGOs, saying "I will not be discouraged or give up."

In an official statement, the Likud MK said "I will continue to put forth legislation that will seek to expose the influence of foreign funds on Israeli so-called 'human rights' organizations. These organizations currently enjoy the protection of Israeli law, but at the same time work tirelessly to undermine the interests of the Jewish State."

The bill, proposed by Danon, fell by a 57-28 vote following a six-hour Knesset discussion on the subject.
